7:03 am
invasion of their country. united states is weighing options. the big question is how will they go about potential air strike? will it lead to political solutions? for now they're trying to distance themselves from maliki and his government. they say he's the problem rather than the solution. nick childs reports. >> reporter: the people fleeing from iraq being forced to temporary camps continues to grou grow. it's adding to the interinternational law over the fall out from the insurgency that swept through iraq. >> people fear apprise sals from ethnic divide and violence mounting in the country, in baghdad as well. there's particular concern for that. we are protecting them. >> reporter: militants

7:05 am
on wednesday iraq shiite prime minister maliki made a new appeal for unity. many see him as part of the problem. he's accused of sectarian poli y polici policies. his supporters say there's a need. >> we do not need to get to where militants get a permanent hold on iraqi territory because that will be the basis on which this growth will grow to the whole area, destabilize the area and will as prime minister cameron said yesterday affect the uk. >> reporter: in shiite dominated areas in the country's far south, more volunteers to take on militants. just how this crisis unfolds and what its impact will be inside iraq and beyond is still far from clear. nick childs, bbc news.
7:06 am
>> reporter: well of course it's not political and diplomatic situation this country is grappling with. there's a growing humanitarian problem. this could turn to major disaster. they said they weren't prepared for influx of refugees that came over after the takeover of isis in mosul. their priority is supply food, water, sanitation and shelter. they say the situation could get worse if they're not helped as soon as possible. >> thanks for that update. isis is thought to have thousands of fighters with many foreigns amongst them. the group claims fighters from uk, germany, france, u.s., arab world, caucuses too. difficult for us to look through
7:07 am
their claims. 150 australians are said to be fighting with syria and iraq. around 800 french nationals have traveled to syria to join militant groups. here in the studio, we have senior researcher and islamic studies with the foundation here in london. thank you for being with us. those figures seem right? >> analysts have been tracking movements of fighter last two or three years. those are the figures we agree on, yeah. >> is there something all the young men have in common? >> islamist genealogy. they want to fight for the glory of islamics. they call themselves the islamic state. there's a brutal dictator in
7:08 am
syria. it's appeal to them. they have this idea of a global islamic state enforcing law. we've seen isis carry out brutal punishment where it carries out land. amputations, beheading, et cetera. unfortunately now they've spread to iraq. it's a real problem. we have three or four thousand europeans with em this. >> 150 australians are also believed to be there. how are they recruited? >> a number of australians have been killed there. these people are recruited with the call of holy wall. they have the declaration of fate. it has powerful power of people who don't know better. it's really about war and ethical war fair. it's not groups like this taking
7:09 am
up arms and increasing brutality. beheading people, displaying trophies, massacring soldiers and prisoners. they don't recognize the modern world. they don't recognize international structure at geneva convention. it's a role problem. >> how do governments in europe and america begin to tackle this kind of extreme? >> governments have been trying to shut off avenues for people to go out there. extremist ideology is a fundamental basis of this. there are too many hate preacher who is promote mentality for example. that disconnect between muslim groups who say you can't live in the world -- on the other hand security services have to help people be integrated and give up the hope of going to fight for the islamic state somewhere. >> thank you very much for
7:10 am
joining us. we've got so much for you on the unfolding crisis in iraq. it's on the website. go to bbc.com/news. you'll find feature, analysis, latest from correspondents on the ground as well. go to bbc.com/iraq. let's bring you up to date with other news. taliban militants have launched attack against the supply base on the border of pakistan. that's the main supply route for nato led forces in afghanistan. 30 trucks were destroyed. there was a gun battle between police and insurgents. board of police say the three attackers have been killed. nine are missing after a boat carrying 27 indonesian workers overturned thursday off malaysia's west coast. it's the second accident in two days. on wednesday, an overcrowded

7:12 am
society in a time of deep economic hardships. we have our correspondent there. how's it been? >> reporter: it's been very interesting. on one hand it's been low key because this was a proclamation not a coronation. on the other hand this is the royal family we're talking about. there was some ceremony, marching bands. then the king and queen appeared on the balcony behind me in the heart of madrid. the crowd is going wild. finally allowed to have the celebration they were denied when their team went out in the world cup last night at the hands of chile. very exciting moment. the crowd is sensing the king on the thrown. people's lives aren't changing here in spain. there's a long list of problems to address. >> was there anything
7:13 am
significant in what he had to say? >> reporter: absolutely. you could call his speech the "i hear you" speech. what i mean by that is king felipe was emphasizing he knew people wanted a new era. he made reference to ethics in public life and said he realized the royal family had to lead by example. now spaniards are fed up with corruption scandals including involving thele palace indirectly. the king's son-in-law is investigated for embezzlement for funds. his daughter, her husband. there was a sense of turning the page there. they don't want this anymore on the thrown. they want somebody more serious. so the speech was reaching out
7:14 am
to all spaniards as we can hear. >> ladies and gentlemen i would also like to express solidarity with all of our citizens who have been hard hit by the economic crisis. we must insure that we work hard to overcome the situation and insure we can offer the necessary protection to those people who are vulnerable in our society. we have the duty to send out the message of hope especially to those of us in our society who are the young generation. people are looking for work. today i would like us to look forward to the future. to a new spain we need to continue to build together as we begin this new reign. >> reporter: so a very serious ceremony here in spain as the new king is sworn in.
7:15 am
but also the mood very much dampened here because of that awful loss at the world cup last night. spain, the previous world champions out of the world cup after chile won 2-0. a sense here, nobody wants to talk about it. >> i'm quite sure they don't. thank you for joining us. a special note for the two little princesses, only eight and seven. i didn't see them do a thing wrong all day. impeccable behavior. still to come, finally above ground after 11 days. we'll bring you the latest live from germany on the pain staking rescue of a man trapped in the country's deepest cave.

7:17 am
now to a story that's gripped us for days. the pain staking rescue of a man
7:18 am
who has been trapped for 11 days in germany's deepest cave has finally come to an end. he suffered head injuries from falling rocks. he has been wenched up slowly through the complex cave system. why did this dramatic rescue operation take so long? take a look. this is the deepest and longest cave. more than a thousand meters deep. when he was injured in the fall he was 1,000 meters underground at the time. it took his companion 12 hours to get out and alert help. it took 12 days to get him out. at each point they stopped and cared for his injuries. he has been now airlifted for hospital treatment.
7:19 am
michael tell us what it was like when he was finally wenched up to safety. >> reporter: there was a huge jubilation scream here with the helpers and organizers that tried so long for so many days to recover. when it was done at 11.44, when his head came up out of this cave there was a huge elation here. they call it the wonder. they think nowhere in the world has ever been completed such a very, very and complicated rescue. >> he has been air lifted to a hospital. any idea how he's doing? >> reporter: we don't have information on that. there is a press conference starting in a few minutes here. i guess we'll hear. we know his condition is stable. his injuries were severe.
7:20 am
so called injury that shumaker also suffered. they had to be gentle with him on his way up. they tried to put him in a package so to say that he was not moved a lot around. that took a very long time. his condition is stable. the injuries are severe. he is as you said now on his way to a hospital nearby. >> briefly michael we're seeing remarkable pictures of this rescue. it was so dramatic. it gripped people for so many days. those involved, what was the rescue they found the most challenging? >> it was the last part. first of all because it is
7:21 am
really very hard to manage to go these huge distances. especially the depth of this cave. it might actually be some of the helpers were exhausted. there were 16 in the cave. they tried to do it very, very slow. the last chamber just near to the exit was about two meters deep, more than the dome. they had to get him up by hand craft. that was very exhausting. afterwards they had another three narrow caves they had to put him through. they finally managed to do that in 11.44. he was out. >> fascinating story. thank you for bringing details to us on that remarkable rescue. you know a teenager, i'm sure you know they're particular about what they wear. most students in the u.s. don't
7:22 am
have to wear a school uniform. that doesn't mean clothes are deemed unappropriate to wear such as a short skirt or backless top. some complain the rules are enforced. girls are punished because administrators think they're distraktdidi distracts to boys. girls have started a web page to try to change policies and attitud attitudes. >> everyday you see more stories of schools banning girls from wearing certain things because it's quote unquote distracting to young men and boys. >> boys animalistic can't control themselves. >> this outfit is not okay for
7:23 am
my school because it's above my fingertips. >> this would also not be acceptable because it has the smallest part in the back that's open. it shouldn't be that you can't wear something that makes you feel comfortable because other people have opinions about it. it will distract their learning when the real distraction is whatever is going on in their minds not what i'm wearing. >> funny, i didn't know that much about the dress code until my youngest daughter came home from school one day and told me she had been punished for violating the dress code. the punishment included wearing a large oversize shirt to cover her body. i kept thinking about that. what did it mean? >> shorts that are short or pants. you'll find find to your knee
7:24 am
length or past your fingertips. schools around the country ban leggings and yoga pants. >> that makes a girl feel like they're the problem. that's embarrassing and humiliating. >> the first time was eighth grade. the administrator measured my thigh to inform me my skirt was in fact mid thigh. i remember feeling incredibly shamed. i was standing in front of another student laying in the nurse's office crying as they held a rule tore my leg. it was the first time i felt my body was an object. something i could measure like a piece of paper. >> there was this massacre in santa barbara a couple of weeks ago as the weather was starting to get warm here and dress code e-mails started going out to families and girls. i thought wow, what does that say when an 11-year-old boy fearing announcements in school
7:25 am
chastising girls for wearing clothing and the underlying message is they're distracting him in ways he can't control. of course that message is going to carry through. it's not surprising that by the time he's 13, 15, 18 years old there's this undertone of a problem women are to him. >> #i'm more than a distraction. it's a movement to reinforce respect for girls. >> i'm more than an attraction. girls are more than what they're wearing. they're more than body parts. more than short or legs or breasts or butt. they're more than all of that. they're people. girls are people. that's an arctticulate group of young women standing up for

7:30 am
hello. welcome to "gmt" on bbc world news. i'm lucy hawkins. in this half hour, the summit on dementia that a big bold global push is needed to speed up research. i'm going to speak to the top global dementia reporter. with the latest on the world cup. spain may have a new king, but they've lost the world crown. looking at ever rising stock market with aaron. >> it's a funny twist. america's central bank continues
7:31 am
to cut back on the stimulus program. yet wall street continues to rise. yes, we are going to take a look at why the markets are still managing to hit fresh record high highs. thousands of iraqis have been allowed to settle in the u.s. since the war. many feared for their lives because they worked with american troops. thousands more have been waiting for visas to come through. now they're worried they would be killed in the chaos engulfed in the country. she was among them who's parents came before the violence erupted. now they're afraid to go home. >> i was surprise had the it went so quickly. i wasn't surprised it happened. >> the voice of an iraqi exile.
7:32 am
fearing from a far the image of the country's sudden violence. >> we've all known the army and police are corrupted. we all knew they were not really a professional army. >> he is now settled in california. his family came to visit before the violence erupted and watched the news from home everyday in horror. >> after capturing a number of big cities in iraq -- >> something in the militias like isis or shiite, they agree on the same thing. everyone that helped the u.s. needs to be killed. >> it took him two years to get a visa to move to america. he says 20,000 like him are waiting. >> i don't know if it's lack of resources or lack of wealth to fix that broken process. both ways it's not going to work. people are dying. >> the state department says
7:33 am
things are improving. the number of asylum seekers is increasing dramatically. his dad came here after retiring from the government ministry. he's now afraid to go back. >> it's impossible to go back to baghdad with that situation cause i will be killed. >> do you think the u.s. will get involved? >> i don't think so. i don't feel they should. i don't think there will be a happy ending for this story. it's going to be disturbing. i have this flag, one of my commanders gifted it to me. >> a memory of his time working with u.s. forces signed by some of those he was close to. >> it has been my honor to work with you. stay safe. >> was it worth it for him and his country? does he regret his role? >> though the at all. i really like what i did. i think it helped a lot of
7:34 am
people even those that hate me. i know i helped a lot of those. we helped reach that cultural gap between the u.s. military and local population. i would do it again. >> let's bring you more now on that dramatic rescue from a cave in germany of a man who had been down there 11 days. there's a press conference taking place now. rescuers take us through what happened bringing him to the surface in a pain staking operation. just to remind you, he survived 11 days trapped a thousand meters under ground after being caught in a rock fall. here he is being brought out. we don't know the extent of his injuries. he's been air lifted to the hospital. let's listen. >> this also applies to our rescue effort.
7:35 am
before then people had thought that a rescue through a cave out of depth of 3,000 feet would be almost impossible. this was still the case into the first days of the rescue effort. there was doubts this could actually succeed. i think that it was possible because a lot of voluntary workers were involved here because they were completely dedicated to the work of the red cross to be there at any time to help anyone who is in an emergency situation. never mind where he comes from or why he got in the difficult situation. this sort of humanity, solidarity that brings climbers and cave workers and rescue workers together.
7:36 am
this strong common spirit has also bond together the rescues from many different countries in the last few days which make possible rescue efforts which was so complex and difficult it is without example. the rescue effort was accompanied from many exceptional people. unfortunately in the time of this press conference it will be impossible to mention everyone by name. we will find a way to honor the rescues at another stage. i'd like to take this opportunity to thank our friends from international rescue organizations. i hope you will allow me to -- i i hope i can ask for some applause to honor this rescue
7:37 am
effort from other countries. we would also like to ask each representative of these organizations. >> we're going to leave the press conference now. it is remarkable. here's a picture of johan westhauser. he survived 11 days trapped 1,000 meters underground. the lead rescuer saying they doubted it could happen. many thought it would no be able
7:38 am
to because of the depth of the rescue. this is a rescue without example he said. he wanted to hon or everyone who had helped because it was an international effort. now at the world cup, the title holder spain will go no further than the group stages after they lost their second game last night to chile. 2-0, late today england takes on uruguay and look to avoid the anticipation. when you thought the world cup couldn't get better, title holders are out. new king in spain. they don't wanted to talk about it though because who would have thought? >> exactly. we were there for that game chile and spain. it was packed with fans from chile just making so much noise. in a way for chile it felt like a home game. at the end of it, spanish fans absolutely dejected.
7:39 am
they had an amazing run. they have won three huge international tournaments including the last world cup. now they know perhaps for this generation of players it's over really. that spanish reign of success finally came to an end. perhaps everyone said it had to at some stage. they looked sluggish on the pitch, a bit slow. chile looked fantastic, power and pace. by the end of it, their fans were celebrating. the manager said they're rebels of this tournament and believes they can go much further in this cup. >> what act tonight ben? we were reminded of the goal last night. tonight england fans nervous over here at the moment i can tell you. >> reporter: yeah, absolutely. that by the way was a greatneth.
7:40 am
not enough to beat them. australia putting up resistance. england, having lost to italy in the opening game, today they have to avoid defeat at the very least against uruguay. uruguay have a top international player, one of the best players in the world. of course england will be hoping they can repeat their performance against italy. everybody said it was a good performance. they got a lot of applaud. no points in that first game. this time they need points. the other games columbia, ivory coast, japan and greece. >> thanks for updating us from rio there. so much more world cup analysis on the web. for in-depth reports on matches including what spain's exit from the world cup means for the
7:41 am
country's dominance over football, contribute to the conversation as well. i'm sure many of you have a few on that. go to bbc.com/world cup. on twitter as well where there's lots of it. use the #bbcworldcup. experts had to describe the research to find a cure for dementia. president cameron is urging countries to make a global push to speed up research and develop a cure by 2025. that deadline is going to be impossible unless drug i remember -- drug firms are given better incentives. our correspondent has this respond. >> 44 million are living are dementia around the world.
7:42 am
it affects language, understanding, judgment. six months since the ambitious pledge to treat or cure dementia by 2025 was made in london, experts around the world meet again to outline specifically what needs to happen to speed up research and clinical trials for new drugs. today the prime minister who led the global pledge in december promised to speed up progress. there are fresh calls for greater investments in research like there has been in cancer research. the uk government pledged to increase research funding to $112 million by 2015. that's still under a tenth of what's spent on cancer research according to alzheimers research. >> we need new ways of removing barriers. the only way we get new
7:43 am
treatments if we lift investment and collaboration worldwide. >> the government is announcing the world's biggest global study into dementia at today's summit including 2 million volunteers. the goal, end to suffering of tens of millions of families across the world dealing with this devastating disease. >> do stay with us on "gmt." later in the program we're going to take you live to that dementia summit. i'll be joined by the global envoy on dementia to give his thoughts and how more can be done to tackle this incredible devastating disease. do stay with us. and it doesn't even fly. we build it in classrooms and exhibit halls, mentoring tomorrow's innovators. we build it raising roofs, preserving habitats and serving america's veterans.

the top stories this hour. islamist fighters push forward in iraq. the spokesperson maliki has urged the u.s., europe take military action including targeted air strikes. king felipe vi has been sworn in as head of state. let's take you live to london where health ministers and experts meet at the dementia summit. we speak to doctor dennis who joins us from there. thank you for being with us. can you explain why so little prague is being made? >> well i call it the risk reward ratio. that is not good in dementia as we compare it with cancer or cardiovascular disease. three out of 104 products that
7:47 am
have gone in to clinical research, only three made it through the regulatory system. the investment as constituted something like $50 billion has been absorbed without any return. we've got to make it more attractive to improve those returns so that all money doesn't go to other diseases. dementia is only a fraction of what cancer or cardiovascular disease gets. >> what sort of incentives are you talking about? >> i'm talking about a big one. i call it b hag. big hairy audition goal. it makes the selling of a drug without competition for a longer period to increase the reward. i realize that would be contentious. we've got to kick start the system so that every drug company in the world puts this
7:48 am
on the board agenda. the second point is i think to make the regulations more accommodating to moving clinical trials that are related to dementia through the system more quickly. hiv is a case in point. back in the middle ages, a treatment ind was developed that enabled drugs to move through. now we can essentially cure hiv and aids if there was some more relaxation, we would move faster. >> doctor, thank you very much for joining us from london. good luck with the summit. thousand to business news. aaron joins us. you'll telling me shortly i could be holding an amazon phone? >> another smart phone on the market. just what we need.

7:50 am
that market. some think maybe it's too late amazon jumping into it. >> the market has changed dramatically. two-thirds of american mobile customers already have a smart phone, different from when apple launched iphone. amazon has to do something very different to get a share of that market. >> i've within reading reports. many out there following the industry say this is not just amazon wanting to deliver a new smart phone on the market, this is amazon wants to collect more data and get us to shop more in the amazon retail empire. >> most of amazon 240 million customers have smart zones and use samsungs, apple and other phones. the bulk are using other people's smart phones already. that's not going to change any time soon. >> you mentioned premium price. pricing is interesting.
7:51 am
when amazon came out with the tablet it was the lower end of the market in terms of price. they've come out with this. it's the opposite end. >> yes. it's going head to head with the iphone and galaxy s 5. it's a premium product. amazon has the authority to cut the price. apple did that seven years ago with the iphone. they dropped the price shortly after launch to drive up demands. >> we'll see how that takes off. we'll talk to you more i'm sure. let's talk about wall street. traders have been doing it again, celebrating another record day for the stock market. s&p 500 closed at 1956.98 beating record set june 9 tell us to set a new all time closing high. a wider index of the market, msc also closed record high.

this is a strange reaction given the federal reserve cut the stimulus money that has been pumping into the economy. it also cut u.s. growth forecasts for the year. but in her comments t big boss, janet yellen reassured investors the u.s. recovery is on track and seemed to be in no rush to raise interest rates. one market expert explained why global markets are on such a role. >> we've seen a cut from 2.9% which the feds set in march to 2.2% for the year. last we're they were talking 3.4% for the united states. we have seen an interpretation that rates aren't going up as quick as people think. the ten year bond yields was down to 2.58 this morning. the market adjusts that down and says no need to worry for the moment. rates are not going to go up. show is back on the road after the terrible winter.
